The benefits of having a police chief as a friend...





A few weeks back we discussed how embattled City of South Miami police chief, Orlando Martinez de Castro, abused the federal NCIC database to look up people for apparently no good reason.  Specifically we mentioned to people that the chief looked up, one of which was prominent attorney Joe Klock...


Mr. Klock didn't respond to our request for a comment, but shortly after we made our blog post, Mr. Klock responded to the New Times when they covered our story and said...
This is an invasion of privacy and a violation of a person's Fourth Amendment rights," Stoddard says. "When the chief of police is doing this, we have a serious problem."
Adds Klock: "I think the police chief believes he is above the law and he can do anything he wants. The people who continue to employ him can solve the problem by firing him."
Very well.  Now let's move on to the second person that the chief looked up, leader of the nonprofit Cuban exile organization Brothers to the Rescue, Jose Basulto...


Rather than get ignored with an email request for a comment, I decided to call Mr. Basulto and see what he thought of the chief running his name through the NCIC system,  I certainly wasn't expecting the response that I got!  When I got Mr. Basulto on the phone he told me that Mr de Castro was a good friend and that he used the NCIC system to look him up as a favor to see if there were anything going on that he should know about!


WTF?!  Really?  A friend asks a fucking police chief to run his criminal background to see if there's anything that he needs to be made aware of?!


No shit!  I won't even get into how outrageous this situation is, I'll leave it up to you guys to deal with it in the comments section...

  1. It's nice that the chief looks out for his crooked friends. The question that begs to be asked is what would old chiefy have done if his ncic search did turn up some sort of a problem for his friend Basulto?

  2. NCIC needs to be advise of the Basulto check, as this is totally illegal and against their policies and for sure will get OMC to at least to loose his job and certification and possibly even criminal charges filed. NCIC does not play games and OMC is not part of their friends and families program.

    1. The FBI's NCIC agreement with local police departments charges FDLE with enforcement. But Joel Chandler at www.Fogwatch.org has found FDLE shows no interest in enforcing the laws governing abuse of the criminal databases by LEO, perhaps nobody there can cast the first stone with a clean conscience. That leaves enforcement to the civil courts, which is where Donna Watts took here case. So don't expect FDLE to whack OMC over looking up Jose Basulto as a favor. But an attorney like Joe Klock, on the other hand, has the means to make lasting point.

    2. Have you not realized yet how corrupt and for profit the civil court structure in Miami has become when it comes to the official business?

    3. Doesn't seem to matter. The municipal insurance carriers apparently settled Donna Watts' numerous cases against area cops who looked her up on DAVID, so her cases never went to trial.

  3. That is a very incriminating statement by Jose Basulto, a Police Chief in the service of anarchy? Only in Miami, God Save America.
